Clarisse Writes | I have a podcast now!

It's truth time.

I've been in a rut for the past four months or so. By rut, I mean I haven't been able to write or to even enjoy all the things I used to be beyond passionate about (including reading and K-pop and just everything fun and good in the world).

In her newsletter, total girlboss Arianne Serafico talked about doing something creative for the sake of being creative. She talked about starting something without considering the ROI or numbers or sales or all that other stuff that's usually important but distracts you from the actual process. It occurred to me that maybe her idea could help me, too.

Initially, I wanted to start vlogging, but once I took into account all the preparation and resources involved, I realized it wasn't for me. Starting a podcast turned out to be the perfect option. I know it's still difficult, but I found this app called Anchor through Gary Vaynerchuck, and it makes the whole process a thousand times simpler.

My podcast is called Clarisse Writes. In it, I hope to talk about books and movies and other pop culture stuff in a snarky and hopefully entertaining manner. Not the best branding statement. I'm aware it should be more specific, but if I thought more and more about it, I might get bogged down in the little details and end up not getting started at all.

In Episode 1: Intro and March 2018 TBR (Living a Good Life and Secret Princes), I talk about all the things I intend to read this March. I hope you can give it a listen. Feedback will definitely be appreciated.

So, without further ado, here's the first episode of my podcast in all its imperfect glory:
